    My mom was a wonderful person and thought more of others than herself.  She always wanted to make sure her boys and their families were doing well. I used to call her every Saturday at 11am and when I called after 11:15 she would wonder if everything was ok. She always asked how Sandy and the boys were doing, but never asked how I was which was very humorous to me. She loved her bowling and spending time at her lake house with her family, especially her brothers and sisters. One of the craziest times was when we had 18 people staying for a weekend with 12 people sleeping on the living room floor. Remember, only one bathroom.  She loved the family gatherings, except when all the kids jumped off the neighbors roof and I got blamed for it - not Phil. That was one of the rare times she was mad. I always found my mom to have incredible strength and fortitude raising 3 boys on her own until she remarried. I love you mom and I miss you! I’ve got to go prepare for my 11am call. Thanks for everything Mom! I will post more later as things come to mind.

    This is the first time she met her great granddaughter, Amelia. She was very comfortable having Great Grandma D holding her. My mom was a special lady.

    This was one of those great moments my mom enjoyed. The was Thanksgiving of 2019 at my house. My mom was not one to show her feelings very often, but she loved this day spending time with some of her grandchildren. That day was one of the biggest hugs I ever got from my mom.

    We gave the wall hanging of Derrick and Trevor to my mom to suck up to her and make Phil mad. My mom loved it and it was very effective to upset Phil.

    This was our mom’s first day in Florida at Discovery Village. She was particularly outgoing and saying hello to all the residents to make new friends. It was amazing to see her so jovial and engaging. Unfortunately, some of the other residents were not as friendly as my mom, but she made it work. She couldn’t hear too well anymore and she would hide her hearing aids from the nurses and then forgot where she hid them. Marty had to go find them.

    This was a fun moment for my mom as you can see. The weather was beautiful as my mom watched Marty putt and drink several Miller Lites. The beer was free to residents and guests that day and his putting improved immensely.

    This was a nice time taking her to the beach and partying with hers boys. Phil was taking the picture.  We enjoyed this day together. Marty and Mickey did an amazing job taking care of our mom during the time she was a Floridian!
